    If you had deliberately underexposed for the ground elements (trees, buildings, boats etc) - I wonder if you had got some detail in the overcast sky?
    As they are, they both lack in contrasts, I think, and the bland, whitish sky really bothers me here. In the first, a slight adaptation in levels or curves might still bring out some "sky" (or a selective one, stronger for the sky, less strong for the rest), but I am not sure there is anything left of the sky in the second...

    I took the freedom of editing the second one: played with the curves, pulled down the highlights, increased contrast and a tad extra saturation.

    So there still is some structure in the sky, but having the image stopped down a bit while shooting would have given more here I suppose.

    Oh, and that blob you see in the sky is a dust-bunny or a raindrop ;) maybe get the sensor cleaned if it appears on your images regularly
